To assess the growth of our students, we focus on essential Illinois Learning Standards in multiple content areas.  During their time in IDEA University, students will develop skills that are grounded in the common core standards of English Language Arts & Literacy, Media Arts, Visual Arts, Music, Social Sciences, and Computer Science.  Of course, students will pick up many "soft skills" along the way, and both these soft skills and standards all flow back to the eight essential characteristics of the program.
